Monitoring Development

Area 1: A weak front is stationary across Florida and into the western Atlantic. Forecast models have been & continue to show an area of low pressure forming then moving west. This kind of set-up can sometimes develop tropical systems, so the area near & east of Florida through the Bahamas will be an area to watch in the coming days.

Area 2: A second area has blossomed overnight near the Lesser Antilles. While looks are impressive, thunderstorm activity may be being produced by cold air aloft. Sometimes though, these systems can involve into warm air systems, thus the possibility remains for tropical development.
